Wilma Goodson Mitchell

Wilma Goodson Mitchell 7/2/1920 – 5/7/2019

After 18 years of separation, Fredrick Charles Mitchell collected his sweetheart, Wilma Mitchell, and took her to heaven on May 7, 2019.

Our mother, sister and good friend, passed away to join her husband, Fredrick Charles Mitchell (deceased May 20, 2001.)

A longtime resident of the Shelley/Firth area, Wilma loved to garden, make afghans and many other things to give as gifts to her friends. Wilma enjoyed working puzzles, cooking up new receipts, and her family, friends and church activities.

Wilma was the second child born to Jacob and Maud Goodson on July 2, 1920 at her grandparents’ house in St. Leon, Idaho. Wilma had six sisters; Melva (deceased)/Darrell Fox, Eva (deceased)/Leo Cook, Ruth/Reed Payne, Joanne (deceased)/Jay Fielding, Mari (deceased)/Dale Dollinger, Carolyn/Dave Hunter, three brothers; Earl/Marion Goodson, Dale/Florence Goodson, Gary/Stephanie Goodson. The family were farmers in the Ammon area.

Wilma married Fredrick Charles Mitchell on September 17, 1939 and were sealed in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple in November 1976. Together they raised three children: daughter, Beverly Pratt (Larry Pratt deceased) of Idaho Falls, son, Gene Allan Mitchell (Estella) of Hemet, California; son, Rick C. Mitchell (Lorilee) of Bonny Lake, Washington. Wilma and Fred had 10 grandchildren, nine great grandchildren, and seven great great grandchildren.

Wilma was loved by all who know her.
